Publisher Description

Is fate playing matchmaker this holiday season?

Missy Higgins isn’t looking for a man, yet everywhere she turns sexy Ben Wright pops up. A harmless flirtation, nothing more, until Ben wanders into the Christmas craft bazaar just as her horrible ex appears. It’s Ben to the rescue as her fake boyfriend with a scorching kiss that leaves her breathless and weak in the knees. 

Mind. Blown. (Though she insists it’s a one-time thing).

But when Ben shows up just as she’s getting fired and offers her a holiday job she desperately needs, she has to wonder if fate might be telling her something. Like screw professional boundaries, give in to uncontrollable lust, and let a man into her heart. How can she resist fate when Ben is irresistible?

D.Freh ,

A great heartwarming read!

There's something about how Kylie Gilmore writes that draws you into her books. I feel like I'm right there experiencing everything. I loved it for that exact reason!

Resisting Fate is a heartwarming story about Ben and Missy who keep getting thrown together. This book has it all: hot romance, lots of laughter, a little drama, some emotional denial, and tons of swoon worthy moments. I definitely recommend this book and would read it again.

Wow! This story is amazing

This is a wonderful story about how lives can be similar but have different outcomes and can still find a way to have their happy ever after. Missy and Ben just clicked for me. They are my new favourite couple by Kylie Gilmore. This series just keeps getting better and better with each book. I can’t wait to find out what happens next

Is it Fate?

Resisting Fate by Kylie Gilmore was a fun, fantastic read! I began relating to Missy Higgins from the first chapter! Ben is sent to shop for his own Christmas presents by his grandmother at a craft sale in the church basement. This begins my love of Ben! He will do what his grandmother asks to please her! There he meets Missy again! Missy doesn’t drop everything to flirt with Ben, nor does she let him get away with the fact that their second meeting, he didn’t recognize her! She has sassy comebacks and is strong and confident! Unfortunately, during their exchange, her ex stops by, and she pulls Ben into a kiss that affects them both in a way they never expected. Then, Ben rescues her (although she really doesn’t want to be beholden to anyone!) and their relationship really begins.

I highly recommend this book! It will make you laugh, cry a bit and give you all the feel goods you want from a HEA book!

I was provided with an ARC of this book and I am providing my honest review.
